What the school offers its staff

West Craven is a small and vibrant secondary school for young people aged 11 to 16 years which serves this local Lancashire/Yorkshire community.

Barnoldswick is located on the Lancashire/Yorkshire border with both Leeds and Manchester drivable in just under an hour.

The Lake District, Morecambe Bay and the Fylde Coast are all a short drive away.

Our vision is to create a culture and ethos which promotes high aspirations and expectations, balanced with the highest level of care and support. We want students to love coming to West Craven, love learning and love being part of the academy family. The vision involves educating the whole child; our academy motto ‘Ad Vitam Paramus’ means ‘We Are Preparing for Life’. We encourage all students to get fully involved in the life of the academy and the opportunities beyond the classroom.

As an academy at the heart of the community we want close links with our feeder primary schools, local businesses, colleges and training providers. The school is on a programme of rapid transformation and improvement. As part of Pendle Education Trust since 2016, the future of the school is bright.

By joining the West Craven High School family you will become part of a supportive and ambitious team. We have regular staff training and dedicate time to continuing professional development and staff wellbeing. Our culture is about always looking at how we can share best practice with each other and improve together.
